Here we go again. My usual suspects and I went out for a movie date last night to catch The Unmarried Wife starring Angelica Panganicaban, Dingdong Dantes and Paulo Avelino.

I was a bit hesitant to ask my friends because they are the ones who doesn’t want to use their brain cells when watching the film. Actually, yung isa lang ang ganon. No brain cells dapat pag movie dates. But I can’t let this one go. And buti nalang din, pina-review sa kumare ko tong film na to so gorabels na kami.

I’ve been a fan of Angelica and Dingdong’s movies. Aminin nyo, ang gaganda ng mga plot ng mga films nila. Hindi puchu puchu. Plus it was directed by Maryo J. Delos Reyes. And the hugot lines!!! Heller! Di pwedeng palampasin.

And in fairness with the film, it delivers. The plot is something na hindi usual. Ang ganda ng pagkakalatag ng background story ng bawat characters. Alam mo yung maiintindihan mo bawat isa sa kanila? Yung mararamdaman mo yung hugot ng bawat isa.

And getting Irma Adlawan is just a brilliant idea. We all know how good she is. But her very short stints on this film are pivotal. Naiyak ako dun sa scene where nag clash sila ng nanay ni Dingdong. The way she delivers that “Ayun! Kaya tayo hindi mapatawad ng mundo eh! Kasi hindi natin mapatawad ang sarili natin!” just made me cry. #FrailtiesOfAWoman Tapos natulala nalang yung nanay ni Dingdong kasi minsan na din syang niloko ng asawa nya! Boom panes!

Ang sakit ng movie na to. Ang sakit kasi ang lalim nya. Hindi lang sya about married life in general. It talks about feminism, equality, about being human. Yes, the frailties of human beings.

I swear! This is a must watch film. Ang ganda ganda. Ang tindi din ng mga kaibigan nina Anne (angelica) at Geoff (dingdong) dito. Sila yung mga #TrueFriends talaga eh. Yung mga ang sarap batukan kasi nagsasabi ng totoo.

And if I may add, ang gwapoooooo ni Paulo Avelino!!! Akin ka nalang bes. Char!
